Frankly, i'm sick of Nintendo using dated hardware. The 3DS needs to at least be in the ballpark of the PSP2, unless Nintendo wants all of the 3rd Party developers jumping ship to make games on modern hardware.

The DS used dated hardware. That's probably why it didn't do very well critically or commercially.

Well, nintendo wants to sell the system at a somewhat reasonable price, so, doing that would probably make it cost more than they want it to.

Agreed. Why just look at the inferior DS and how much of a problem it was for it and how incredibly successful the PSP is in comparison.

The PSP used somewhat top of the line hardware.. which is why it was critically and commercially successful.. 3-4 times more the the DS was. Clearly.. the better the hardware is the better the system sells regardless of the pricing point. Sony is making so much bank on the current playstation consoles.

.....in the ballpark of the PSP2? What PSP2? PSP2 will need to be in the 3ds ballpark.

I'm glad so many people understand that graphics are everything, I'd hate to see that giant iPho... er, iPad, get popular.

The PSP2 is rumored to have a SGX543MP8 GPU. A fair analogy with the 3DS would be comparing Ganondorf to a Goomba.

But the 3DS will actually have Ganondorf and Goombas, so it automatically wins.
